You just make yourselves look desperate when you try so hard to make Trump look stupid.

The man made billions.

That's not something stupid people do.
He inherited $400 million. He has bankrupted more businesses than you have fingers, and lost more billions than he made. He would have more money now had he simply invested his inheritance in an index fund, possibly two to three times as much. Whatever he has currently he stole half of. He is destroying the country to line his pockets, and desperately trying to keep Congress from finding out about his business connections with foreign countries, including Russia.

Trump is not stupid, but it's all street smarts and mafia influence. He is, however, the most ignorant iindividual ever to set foot in the Oval Office.

I kinda feel bad, now. Making fun of someone over something he can't change isn't gentlemanlike.

That is funny stuff.

this. it has been known for many years that if we are going to go to mars, then we should be using the moon as a jumping off point to save on fuel, allowing heavier payloads for the stuff we are going to need when we get to mars. remember we are talking about a 6 month trip one way, so any possible rescue missions are not going to be showing up anytime soon.

Yet supporters constantly make excuses for his ignorance. He's not worth the trouble he is causing this country.

Where do you guys get this idea? Getting a payload to lunar orbit, let alone the lunar surface, then back out of the Moon's gravity and then off to Mars is a huge delta-v loss. Unless you hand-wave into existence some sort of lunar resource extraction scheme, there's nothing gained by entering the Moon's gravity only to have to claw out of it again.

Trump is coming into some seriously bad astrological time from now through to 2022. Karma is a ***** and she knows his name.

The subject of the sentence is "bigger things we are doing."

Then for clarity's sake, he should figure out proper placement of parenthesis. You put your parenthetical statements right next to what you are referring to so it's clear. Having it near Mars makes it look like he is making a reference to Mars itself, not "bigger things", with the way it is written.

We can suss out what he likely meant because he surely cannot be literally stating the Moon is part of Mars, but let's not pretend that the way he writes this makes sense as far as sentence structure goes.
